We went to Oregon for Christmas this year to celebrate with the Grandparents, Aunt/Uncle and Cousin. We had a great time and had amazing weather. We visited santa, opened presents and even had professional photos taken with the family (photos to come). Maddy was a great traveler all the way to Oregon (a 6-7 hour trip).
Maddy and I flew to California in the middle of December to visit her Great Grandparents, Aunt & Uncle and Cousin. The trip was great overall and she was an amazing traveler. We were lucky to have great weather and had so much fun visiting with our family.
Maddy is now 2 months old. Growing like crazy! We love having her in our life and are adjusting to parenthood pretty well. Our upcoming goals include getting her to sleep all night in her crib (we've appreciated you swing, but we need to move on) and transitioning Mom back to work (Maddy will spend the next couple of months being taken care of by amazing grandparents before going to daycare at the end of February)!
Here are some pictures from our recent 2 month photo shoot. So many smiles!
Maddy had her 2 month check-up this morning. She weighed in at 10lbs 11oz (49th percentile) and measured 23 inches long (73rd percentile). She got 3 different shots and screamed her head off during the process. She's been asleep though ever since, so hopefully the rest of the day will be alright.
As part of her bedtime routine, we've started giving Maddy a bath everynight. It seems to be working and she typically sleeps for 5-6 hours straight when she first goes down for the night (followed by a couple 2-3 hour chunks). We're guessing it's because she tires herself out in the bathtub from all the kicking and splashing!
Well the overwhelming concensus is that Maddy is an exact replica of Ted and I would agree. She looks more and more like him every day. I thought I'd post a good picture of both of them to see what others think. As far as I can tell, they have the same mouth, the same face shape and the EXACT same eyes. Pretty cute :)
